05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: The Black Sea Bounce sounds like the latest dance craze all the kids are doing.
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well, everybody else is doing the Juggernaut Trot, so
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: In soviet Russia Black Sea bounces you!
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: sigh... couldn't do sh*t
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: good job on the three-way draw, F/I/R
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: yeah
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: 3 friends playing
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: That's a pretty serious accusation Germany, and I promise you that is not the case.
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Come now. It's not like that.
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: it's easy to verify that
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I invite you to go ahead and do just that. I have no idea who Russia or France are in real life, and in fact I have not (to my knowledge), ever met anyone who plays on this site IRL before.
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: to be clear, i'm in no way condoning/supporting germany's accusation; i'm genuinely congratulating on 3-way draw
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I didn't think you were England.=)
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: My friendship with I/R began the moment you attacked Bel.

Instead of looking outward for your troubles, its best to first look inward.
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: (me, or Germany? regarding attacking Bel)
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: b/c either's understandable
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Germany.
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: I lost my love for you when you went to the channel in Autumn '01!
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: ;__;
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Fair enough. I chose to do so b/c Germany messaged me first, sounding like he was interested in attacking you, and at the time I had no reason to believe Germany was a poor choice of alliance (fwiw, anyway)
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: The seed of hostility grew when you moved to MAO in the spring
05 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1905: (In the interest of disclosure, I never did end up *actually* attacking any of your territory or units -- only positioning in a manner that threatened to.)
05 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1905: That is true. I was still willing to work with you and Germany, but then they took Bel and any hopes of a western triple were dashed.
05 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1905: it all seems... catchy
05 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1905: Eh, perhaps it might have been possible had Germany coöperated and poked Sweden any one of the three times I asked him to :P
05 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1905: True.
05 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1905: better for moderators to check
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Go right ahead.
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: We have just played well, goodness.
05 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: But might as well discuss it with them
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I want a 3-way draw. I am comfortable with that.
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Then why did you attack me instead of Germany?
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: He never said the 3-way draw included Italy, in his defense ;)
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Yes. Russia definitely intends it to include you.
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I've been hitting germany for years. And you and france kept fighting, so i had no support.
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm not oblivious; F/G/R is much more likely than my survival ;)
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: What was your plan, Italy?
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: So why didn't you move yourself into a position or ask for my help in taking kiel or something? I guess you want the three way draw with Germany?
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I dunno. I was just trying to see. Getting some practice.
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I've been playing chicken in scandinavia with England for lord knows how long. Only so many spaces up there.
06 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Can't throw away survival instincts.
06 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: If we take out the two literl ONE CENTRE powers left, i want to draw it out. Let's do it.
06 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1909: If it's possible for Russia to solo, I imagine now is when it happens. Otherwise I'm committed to maintaining a stalemate line if at all possible. I somewhat doubt Russia fully intends to see my elimination and then draw, when only one or two SCs away from the win.
06 Dec 17 UTC gg
06 Dec 17 UTC Good game everybody
06 Dec 17 UTC GG y'all. Italy, sorry I pissed you off, far too open to not try.
